KIRKUS REVIEW

This is a blend of nostalgic reminiscences, culinarymemoirs, human interest bits -- much of it focussed on theirreplacable Stina, who presided over the Michigan kitchen ofthe author's youth and started him down the pathway of thegourmet. Stina's secrets and her philosophy -- some of theauthor's sister's specialties --festivals of successiveseasons -- and their expression in tasty dishes -- the midwest, the northwest, ranch and lumber camp food, sea food ofCalifornia, Hawaiian dishes, the Orient, India, Italy, Spainof the Pyrenees -- round the world in and out of kitchens. Fun reading -- but not applicable to the average housewife'spractical needs.
